Bulky Fittings

I'm replacing all plastic fittings with metal; the problem is that without custom fittings the assemblies--like this suit automatic overpressure dump valve (silver cap on pipe extending right) and the manual dump valve (black knob)are very bulky, obviously not suitable for flying, only for testing. But the testing is done! It's time to build the flying system! So I need access to a few lower-profile fittings; working on assembling them this coming week, knocking off items on the 48-point To Do list with a laser focus on a good test this summer in Copenhagen.
